Yelp Austin Celebrates Black-Owned Businesses as “Ones to Watch”

Over the past year, we’ve seen people turn to Yelp to find and support Black-owned businesses in unprecedented numbers — consumer interest in Black-owned businesses was up 3,085% in February 2021, compared to the same period the year prior.

Ahead of Juneteenth, we’ve rounded up a list of highly rated and popular Black-owned businesses in Austin.  Businesses like Bird Bird Biscuit where Yelpers rave about the Chicken Queen Beak sandwich, and Green Leaf AC and Heating, who help Yelp users stay cool in the Texas heat. Our hope is that you’ll discover new local favorite businesses to support.
